CeCP PLAY THERAPY

 

 

WHAT IS PLAY /CREATIVE ART THERAPY?

Play/ Creative Art Therapy is a type of therapy that helps children and young people to express themselves, explore their thoughts and feelings, and make sense of their life experiences. We work with children and young people of all ages in a safe and trusting environment to help shift perspectives of difficult experiences and increase confidence and self-esteem. Our main aim is to equip children with adaptive behaviours and better coping mechanisms for everyday life. We work in a holistic child centred way and use both non-directive and directive techniques to meet the needs of individuals.

WHO CAN IT HELP?

Play /Creative Art Therapy is an effective intervention for children and young people with difficulties such as:

  • Those dealing with parental separation, divorce or conflict.
  • Children dealing with stressful situations.
  • Children who have witnessed domestic violence.
  • Children who have experienced loss through bereavement or family breakdown
  • Experience of abuse or neglect
  • Children in care – adoption and fostering
  • Children or young people with low self-esteem and anxiety issues
